If your C drive is almost full you need to get a new bigger c drive. Windows needs room to do its thing on the C drive. Reader needs to install things on the C drive even if you can get some of it to install elsewhere. Hard drives are cheap.

To install Adobe Reader on a different drive, download the installer (e.g. http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.3.3/enu/AdbeRdr933_en_US.exe) and run it. During the install process you will see this panel
Click on 'Change Destination Folder' to specify where you want to install it.
Hats off to Pat who provided the download link immediately above this post; it really does work. My previous attempts to run the Adobe v9.3.3. update failed because my W:\ drive was being considered invalid by the Adobe update utility (despite the fact my W:\ drive serves as the "My Documents" directory for all the computers in our house—a poor man's version of Network Area Storage).

Adobe themselves should offer the save-to-a-specific-directory option during their update process, certainly when they detect a download/installation failure and especially while providing an error message saying that drive letter (other than C:) is invalid.

My thanks again to Pat for that very helpful link! Nice job!

Yes, SATA drives are cheap. SSD drives are not. Many people use an SSD drive as their C drive because they're way faster. SSDs are typically only 64 to 120GB in size. A 256GB SSD costs around $500-650 right now. While the same size SATA drive costs around $40-50. Huge difference.
I wouldn't want Adobe's bloated Reader software on an SSD.
